Girls' board skirts - Product Recall

Filed under: Alerts & Recalls

Not satisfied with just putting lead paint on our children's playthings, Chinese manufacturers are now putting the toxic stuff in their clothes. Well, at least one manufacturer is, and for that reason the Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced the recall of about 600 Sun Smarties Board Skirts. The lead paint is in the grommets.

The skirts are peach microfiber with an embroidered flower accent and back pocket. You can find Item Number 13926 HIBI printed on the care label inside the back of the waistband. The skirts were sold in girls sizes 12 months to 4T. They have six grommets, four on the front of the waistband and two on the back pocket.

As mentioned, these were made in China for Chelsea & Scott Ltd. and sold exclusively at One Step Ahead from May 1, 2008 through May 9, 2008 for about $15 each.

If you have one of these skirts, you should immediately take it away from your child and return it to Chelsea & Scott Ltd to receive a replacement skirt or refund. You will be sent a postage paid envelope from the company.

For more information, contact Chelsea & Scott Ltd by calling (866) 271-4536 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, visit their Web site, or email them at
